Under New Ownership
Meet Jason Elmore
Jason Elmore is owner/operator of Playmakers Indoor South. Jason received his undergraduate degree in Math from LSU, with a desire to teach. Having graduated mid-semester, Jason went to work as a Landman, managing multiple oil and gas lease and pipeline right-of-way acquisition projects. Finding this a rewarding career path, Jason decided on a business career and achieved a Masters in Business Administration from Nicholls State University.
Jason grew up playing tennis and continued to play recreationally and competitively during his early working career. Jason was a volunteer for Recreate New Orleans, through the Young Leadership Council, where he participated in the organization of basketball clinics and games for underprivileged youth in downtown New Orleans. He was also a volunteer reading tutor through the YLC.
From 1999 to 2005, Jason was a Land and Permitting Agent for Shell Pipeline Company in New Orleans, where he managed landowner negotiations and permit acquisitions for Shell’s Gulf Coast pipeline systems. From 2005 to 2010, Jason was manager of an independent oil and gas lease brokerage firm, managing several contractors on several oil and gas projects. From 2010 to 2011, Jason worked for Denbury Resources, managing a large pipeline acquisition project in Wyoming. In 2012, Jason became a Senior Landman with Freeport-McMoRan Oil & Gas in the New Orleans office, again managing several large oil and gas lease acquisition projects, which involved the management of over 200 contractors simultaneously.
Jason married his wife Britt in 2001. They have one son, born in 2008. Beginning in 2011, Jason began coaching his 3-year old’s soccer team, and fell in love with coaching youth soccer. He continued coaching and now coaches his son’s U10 team. Realizing his passion for youth sports, Jason began looking for an opportunity to participate in youth sports and development professionally. Playmakers Indoor Sports’ southshore location became available for purchase, and Jason decided to make the leap and purchase the business in May, 2016.
In addition to coaching youth soccer and embarking on a new business venture, Jason is den leader for his son’s cub scout pack. He is also Treasurer of the Board of the Professional Landman’s Association of New Orleans.
